Achalasia Webinar (On-Demand) | September 2019
Released: September 2019
Viewing Time: 54 minutes
Esophageal symptoms are heterogeneous and have overlapping differential diagnoses that require a logical flow process to determine the cause and a personalized approach. Achalasia is the prototype esophageal motility disorder and an understanding of the presentation and treatment of this disease will provide a strong foundation for the management of esophageal diseases.

The live event was held September 12, 2019.
Learning Objectives
At the end of this webinar, you should be able to:
  • Understand which diagnostics tests are most helpful in the evaluation of dysphagia and how to implement these tools in an efficient care model.
  • Know how to classify esophageal motor disorders to inform treatment.
  • Understand how to personalize interventions for achalasia and other esophageal motor abnormalities.

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Because all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, it is not always practical to point to a particular browser as "better" than another. Because browsers are free, you can easily shift from one to another for various purposes. Whatever browser you are using, here are some tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
